Although Beryl will weaken once over land, the storm will start to move quicker on Monday. As a result, substantial weakening is not expected until the storm passes through Houston on Monday afternoon. Tropical storm force winds of up to 70 mph are possible in the City of Houston by midday Monday. Higher gusts, near 90 mph, are possible along the coast during landfall.

Conditions will quickly dry out during the evening, and the sun will even break through the clouds for a large portion of the area. Tuesday looks much calmer, albeit hot, with sunshine returning and highs in the mid-90s.

Evacuations

Officials called for voluntary evacuations in parts of Galveston, Matagorda and Brazoria counties.

Sunday afternoon, the Town of Quintana ordered a mandatory evacuation order.

Matagorda County evacuations are for those living on or visiting areas along the coast, including residents in Sargent, Matagorda and Palacios.

The Galveston County order went into effect at 10 a.m. Sunday for residents and visitors west of 103rd Street not protected by Galveston’s Seawall.

Brazoria County called for voluntary evacuation for all low-lying areas south of the Intracoastal Canal, including Bryan Beach, the Village of Quintana, the Village of Surfside Beach, Follett's Island, and Treasure Island.

Record-setting Beryl

The 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season was promised to be an active one, with Colorado State University and NOAA predicting well above normal numbers. In fact, the NOAA forecast for the season was the most aggressive forecast ever produced. Several factors including record warm sea-surface temperatures and a transition to La Nina by late summer were the driving factors in these aggressive forecasts. However, Hurricane Beryl is already shattering records before the peak of the season arrives. Meteorologist Pat Cavlin has a list of records the storm has already broken.

  • Three factors will determine if Beryl comes to Texas
  • Emergency management officials urge Texans to prepare now in case Hurricane Beryl heads this way
